From the Press Release:
Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada and Three Little Birds Productions are set to release Among Friends in the Canadian home entertainment market in 2013. This new horror film marks the directorial debut of scream queen Danielle Harris and is the story of a group of friends who get together for a murder mystery party, but things take a dark turn when one hijacks the evening and is out for blood.
‘Among Friends is a festival favourite featuring a well respected ensemble cast of much loved horror movie actors and is a fantastic directorial debut from Danielle Harris’, says Susan Curran, Director of Marketing and Acquisitions for Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada.
‘I am excited to be reunited with this distributor after working so closely with them on The Victim’, says producer and star Jennifer Blanc-Biehn of this release. Alyssa Lobit, writer and star, mirrors Jennifer’s enthusiasm, ‘Having just screened to an awesome, rowdy crowd at DedFest in Edmonton, we’re thrilled to be bringing Among Friends to more Canadian fans’.
Among Friends is a twisted horror about a dinner party gone wrong. Set against an 80s backdrop, good times take a dark turn when one in the group hijacks the evening in the name of Integrity. Through an attempt to help the others come clean about secret betrayals against one another, it’s revealed who’s willing to cut through the bone to expose the truth.
This film marks a collaboration between real-life friends, with most people in the cast and crew having known each other for years. Written by Alyssa Lobit and produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn and Athena Lobit, Among Friends is the feature directing debut of Danielle Harris. This group of women collectively has decades of experience in the film industry, and they are excited to be bringing fans and audiences everywhere a roller coaster ride of fun, intensity and, oh yes… blood.
Executive produced by Jay Lobit (Three Little Birds Productions) and William Allison (Hollywood Treasures, Inc.), Among Friends was shot in August 2011 in Los Angeles, and the movie is represented by Chiller Films. The film has played to Lund International Fantastisk, Sitges International, and Horrorthon Film Festivals among others.
